Child Watch Guidelines 

  • We offer diaper changing as a  courtesy, but ask that you please provide your own diapers and wipes. Children still potty training MUST wear a pull-up while in Child Watch and you will be called if they have an accident.
  • Snacks are allowed. Please remember to label cups and bottles. Due to severe allergies, nuts and nut products or products manufactured where they come in contact with nuts are NOT allowed.
  • No gum, outside toys or small items may be brought into Child Watch, as they are not preapproved by staff and may pose a choking hazard. 
  • Please do not bring your child if they have green/yellow mucus, sore throat, fever, diarrhea/vomiting or are otherwise visibly ill. If your child contracts a contagious infection, contact Child Watch.
  • Shoes are required for all mobile children
  • If you are not able to keep your  reservation, please call and cancel. If you are more than 15 minutes late, your spot may be given away.
  • If a child needs special attention, our staff will do their best to comfort them. If we are unsuccessful, as a last resort, we will page the parent.
